La Collection: Celebrating 25 Years at Musée Regards de Provence

Musée Regards de Provence has an unmissable show for all lovers of Provencal art – the museum is celebrating the 25 years of its foundation with  « La Collection – ses 25 ans »

The exhibition combines 40 works painted locally during the 19th and 20th centuries. These works were created in Marseille, along the coast (Martigues to Agay) and inland in the Provencal countryside. Artistic styles vary from landscape artists to coloristes, impressionnists, fauves and expressionist. Continue reading here for the original blog post and photos by Aixcentric. The La Collection show runs until March 31, 2024.

Lynne Alderson

Aixcentric was set up by Lynne Alderson three years ago as a channel to send out info on events taking place around Aix as well as news, relevant books, the latest films, new shops and of course where to eat locally. Why?

According, to Lynne:

"It came about out of frustration with the lack of communication in the town. Posters would suddenly go up about an event that week. No prewarning. I had difficulty too in finding information from many of the tourist offices. Things are slowly getting better and there is sometimes information in English. Hopefully by keeping an eagle eye on the local press and talking with contacts in town, I can publicize fun things that people would otherwise miss. It's a ragbag of info that I come across on my travels. I've published nearly 600 posts now and have lots of followers so hopefully, it is fulfilling its role of helping people, residents and visitors alike, get the most of their time in Aix."

For what is going on in Aix-en-Provence, Lynne has you covered at Aixcentric
